    Hi Fiskeepers

    I live in a remote area so no chance for me to shop around thus rely on online stores. The question is, is Miscota legitimate they are advertising an Eheim 2271 (Pro 4 250) at R 2 440.63 and a Tetratec 800 at R1 806. Sounds too good to be true.

    Also they use the SA post office for delivery.

    Always keen to save 40-50% on and item but also not to keen to loose every cent in a scam.

    Would rater support our tried and testes suppliers but if these prices are correct...

    Any opinion please.

    A quick Google search yielded pretty bad results - for both the local chain and their overseas counterparts. It seems that they don't deliver the goods once paid for. If you're absolutely uncertain and willing to part with a few bucks, maybe do a trial run with some cheaper goods first. Personally, I would not.

    Regards,

    If something seems to good to be true...it usually is.

    Treat with caution.

    @Keith Jenkinson - try http://www.onlinepetshop.co.za/ - I believe is run by Moolis of Petstop SA (Copyright © 2009 Petstop SA's Online Pet Shop - Powered by Godspeed Group). Prices are reasonable and you can get almost everything there. I'm considering buying from them in the future.
